Parts requiring print supports and print helpers

In Pib, most printed parts do not require supports. However, some parts require supports to be printed accurately. This creates a demand for which types of supports fit each part better. The following parts are the ones that need supports and which type.

1- B01-Clavicle_left

B01 requires paint on supports (support on build enforcers), as on build plate supports create extra supports that are difficult to remove and aren’t required.

Some parts in Pib require print helpers. Print helpers are removable extrusions of the part that doesn’t serve a functional purpose and isn’t needed in assembly. They are needed when parts are so thin to hold their own weight while printing, so they act as a support, then they are removed after printing. Print helpers are used in the following parts in Pib:
